Leibniz female Professorship Program

A personal report from Rosa I. Grote-Gálvez, Section Officer C, on  the kick-off event for the Leibniz female Professorship Program “Sie kommen wie berufen”
What is the Leibniz female Professorship Program?

A funding and support program of the Leibniz Association to promote more women in science.

What is the aim of the Leibniz female professorship program?

The program aims to support the successful recruitment of internationally outstanding female scientists and to encourage the appointment to a professorship at an earlier stage in their career. The funding positions are W2 and W3 professorships, which are either permanent or have a tenure track option. The Leibniz Association started this program at its institutes in 2018. The first five female scientists have already been selected and are now being appointed to professors at their universities.
